While exciting, it's also terrifying to be frank. Thoughts of parenting, sleep training, breastfeeding, and well THE BIRTH are consuming my brain quite often. And naming a little human? I never realized what big a deal that was. We have a list of boy and girl names we like, but nothing we're dead set on.
How I'm feeling: Heavier, but still feeling good in general. Sitting has become increasingly more awkward. The belly and baby are bigger, so it requires reclining to some extent no matter what I'm doing. Baby Moe seems to kick and squirm as if to say "hey, I need more room in here!" Sleep was good this week. I considered any morning I woke up at 5 a.m. or later a victory (even if it did require a nap just a few hours later).
Baby: is the size of a squash (~15.2 to 16.7 inches, 2.5 to 3.8 pounds) and the same range as the last few weeks. Baby was head down with a heartbeat in the 130's at my midwifery appointment.
Weight gained: 23 lb.
I didn't snap a profile photo of the bump this week, so this photo of the manfriend and I from Easter brunch at my grandparents' will have to do.
I got a haircut this week and while I like my stylist, she tends to go a bit chop happy when I request just 2" off. Ugh. Not a fan of the current 'do.
I got a sinus infection this week, so my workouts were a little lighter than usual, but I still wanted to keep moving and make sure to give this illness the boot.
What I'm wearing: Much of the same. All maternity items (minus most of my workout gear).
Baby preparations: Another busy week. I washed and folded all of the baby clothes we've received from friends and family. So far, this has been my favorite baby 'to-do' as everything is so tiny and adorable. We also picked up our BOB stroller from REI.
Cravings: All sweets and BBQ flavored popchips.
What's the highlight of your week?
The weather is turning for us today, so I hope to get my hike on and enjoy some sun in the next few days.
